I flagged a question without understanding it's correct meaning.

Is it possible to delete/remove if once I flagged incorrectly for a question ?

  • No, it's not possible. However you can post a comment describing that you flagged it mistakenly.

Following information from help center is helpful:

Is there any way to remove flags?

There is often no need, as offensive and spam flags expire after 48 hours if the thresholds aren't reached.

Rolling back a post to a previous state will revert to the number of offensive flags from that particular revision. This allows the OP (or someone else with edit rights) to rollback a post that someone else made offensive in a later revision. However as a general user, once you mark a post as offensive, you cannot take it back.
